Discussion > Attenborough fronts ‘Climate Change: the Facts’ 18th April BBC1

David Attenborough ‘Climate Change: the Facts’
airs at 9pm on Thursday 18th April on BBC1

April 12th BBC Radio4 Feedback raised the purely rhetorical question
'Is the BBC doing enough for Climate Change campaigning ?'
.. Ridiculous, cos they know full well they are broadcasting a BBC1 90min Climate special the following Thursday
as well as giving a lot of coverage to ER : the Global Warming public operation using kids.
Just 2 facets of the BBC's multipronged GreenDream campaigning that comes up dozens of times everyday on the BBC networks.

2 hours after the Radio4 show BBC1 aired the trailer, I quote @QV
“We are facing a global catastrophe. Climate change is happening
.. and happening fast.
What can we do to avert a disaster.”

... accompanied with the usual video of smoking chimneys,
.. ice falling into the sea, falling trees,.. forest fires
... and dried up river beds.
If only the programme was going include some unbiased “facts”,
but I fear the will only be the “facts” which support the alarmist viewpoint.

Wow. It hasn't even been broadcast yet and still the ad hominems have been booted up.

You guys sound really rattled,

The rattled person is the person who is shouting "ad hominems (plural) have been booted up."

When all I see is one thing : Attenborough being called a saint

Please note all his "Convenient Untruths". NPA=Nasal Protuberatory Alert.

Phil, how about if he'd debate? You know, a little of the ol' red team/blue team bit. When you surely want to know more than your hairdresser.

Not hard at all to imagine some lavishly catered seminars in secluded and expensive boutique hotels about how to orchestrate the campaign.

Phil, how about if he'd debate?

Yeah, science refereed by Dimbleby. Or Neil. That will work. Kim, how about the Red team submit something for peer review?

Just kidding, obvs. The debate happened. In the literature, where it belongs. McIntyre scored 1 then retired hurt, about a decade ago.

Any debate shouldn't be with St. David ( a narrator) - but with the producers, scriptwriters and editors and it most certainly shouldn't be held where any party has content control.

Looks like the Netflix crew are being exceeding evasive about flying walrus stuff.

Of course "Climate Change The Facts" is unrelated to the Netflix incident - if you think that - I'll sell you the second Severn Crossing for £99.99.
